Anchorage

An unexpected clutch problem forced us to divert from our plannd itinerary and drive to Anchorage. Replacing the clutch in the pickup took three days (parts had to arrive from the Lower 48) so we spent the time wandering around Anchorage.

Richardson Highway Between Tok Cutoff and Big Delta Junction

The section of the Richardson Highway between Glennallen and Delta Junction is very scenic and mostly seen only by Fairbanks fishermen on the way to Valdez!

You'll see the Trans-Alaska Pipeline in some of these pictures. It follows the road here through Isabel Pass.
